Founded by Todd Kemen, licensed S.E., Response Structural Engineers is a full-service engineering firm licensed in multiple western states. Our goal is simple: To provide you with the best structural engineering experience possible. Critical to this is clear communication especially well before the project begins construction. We find that a little extra effort during the schematic phase of projects will later result in less changes and a better overall design.
